    It was in my email 20 times. If I don't remember the name from the forum I look it up on the member list. She was not listed so I didn't open it. Some people need to get a life. Also beware of someone trying to sell you a flat screen tv. They have stole 300 cook stove fronts and put them in flat tv screen boxes. They will open the box and it really looks like a tv. it was on the news here and a lady had paid 300 bucks for it. Bet she is still trying to get a picture on it. :angry: :eek: . Comes complete with a wire and remote :dead:

    My suggestion is this:
    1. Click the word "Profile" in the upper right heading of the page.
    2. Put in your password when prompted.
    3. Look at the next item under your email address. Change it to say "No" for the question: "Allow Forum Members to Send you E-Mail?:"

    The moderators here have quickly responded every time I have asked them to put away an obvious offender like this one, but unfortunately these acts are only detectable after they've happened. The moderator's quick action was why some of you couldn't find the offender on the member list; they were quickly removed.

    Hey! This is a great forum!

    There is also someone out there phishing who claims to be from Chase Bank. This is an otherwise very ligitimate looking email. One email claims that if you respond to an email you will get $20 deposited into your account. Another says that there have been unauthorized charges against your Chase account, and your account has been frozen, would you please provide your account information so they can restore your account. I checked with Chase customer service, and they indicated that they will never ask for this sort of thing by email. I have not yet gotten it from this forum, but have from several other forums. Chase is very aware of this scam and is doing everything they can to get it shut down, in the mean time, just preview your email, and delete anything that looks like this.

    Re: Beware

    It is called a 4-1-9 scam. They have been out there for years. Not only will they take your money one way or another after it is all over you will find that it is illegal and you could go to jail. Gentleman I read about lost enough to by the best DP out there. Then when his money didn't show up he went to the law. They informed him he had broken the law and they put him in jail. Of course he didn't have any more money nor a business so maybe jail afforded him a meal and a bed. I have seen a lot of internet scams. Amazing isn't it. No phone calls, no letters, no door to door, just ask for the information and there are people that will give you all the information required to be ripped off. Scams and identity theft are real bad all the time, but really starts to excalate around holidays. Good luck to all.
